We ask that families commit to the same schedule each week at the time of registration. You can choose to attend anywhere between one and five days each week. At the time of registration, you will choose how many and which days. For example, you can choose three days/week and select Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays for the semester. Children may only attend the days that they are registered for.


Enrolled participant schedule changes will be accepted, based on availability, for a $10.00 schedule change service fee. If you are reducing the number of days needed, the credit for the unused days will apply to the next month. Schedule changes must be made at least one week in advance. To change your schedule, call or email Jill Jehs at jjehs@lisleparkdistrict.org or at 630-353-4345.


You have the flexibility to sign up for whichever days you need. Upon registration, you can elect to pay for a single day, a whole week, month, or semester. You can select as many days per week as you need. Your child must be signed up in advance for days attending. Deadline is the Wednesday of the previous week. There is no transferring of days. Refunds will not be issued for cancelled days.


The EDGE programs are contingent on meeting minimum enrollment. There will be a $10 fee for late payments.


You can start the withdrawal process by emailing Jill Jehs, Youth and Early Childhood Manager at jjehs@lisleparkdistrict.org. Future payments will be stopped for the program, but no refunds will be issued. Withdrawal requests must be made before the next automatic payment being processed..

If you have any questions, please reach out to Youth and Early Childhood Manager, Jill Jehs at jjehs@lisleparkdistrict.org or at 630-353-4345.


ADA Accommodation or Assistance for Programming

The Lisle Park District welcomes and supports the participation of individuals with special needs in all programs, activities, and services. If any person wishing to participate in a Lisle Park District program has special needs that must be accommodated to enable participation, that person (or parent/guardian) must notify the Park District. The Lisle Park District will do what is reasonably possible to satisfy those needs.

Steps To Secure ADA Accommodations or Assistance:
  • 1. It is recommended to register for program(s) at least 2 weeks prior to program start date.
  • 2. Submit a request for ADA Accommodation or Assistance in any program. This request is required at time of registration. Please fill out the assistance or accommodations section on our program registration form.
    Request includes, but is not limited to: Inclusion Aides, Sign Language Interpreters, Adaptive Equipment and Accessible Transportation.
  • 3. Parent/Guardian will be contacted within 48 hours of registration to discuss and determine level of support needed. We will do our very best, but we can’t guarantee an aide will be secured prior to the program start date.
  • 4. If we are able to secure an aide, SEASPAR (South East Association for Special Parks And Recreation) or the AIDE will contact you. For more information about SEASPAR, visit seaspar.org.
  • 5. For more information, or if you have not heard anything a day prior to the program start date, please contact Jon Pratscher, Superintendent of Recreation at 630-353-4305 or jpratscher@lisleparkdistrict.org
